Here follows an automatic translation of the latest ALEP newsletter, sent today in response to the Government approval of Mais Habitação:
Despite the historic mobilization of the sector, all the support and allies we got in this fight, the criticism from all parties from the left to the right, the veto of the President of the Republic, the Government, totally isolated, and using and abusing its majority absolute, approved today, September 22nd, the “More Housing” package in full and without changes.
The diploma will now be sent to the President of the Republic who will be obliged to promulgate the diploma. As it is a reconfirmation of the same diploma approved before, this law can be promulgated and come into force very soon, within 1 to 2 weeks.
URGENT ISSUES TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT
In these remaining days until “More Housing” comes into force, our alert is for urgent cases that may be affected, in particular:
1- Carrying out new registrations : if you have projects in progress or in the final stages that have not yet been registered as AL, you must do so as quickly as possible.
2 – Changes in ownership and transfer of shares of Local Accommodation companies will also only be possible without impact until the new law comes into force.”
